2016 Reprint of 1884 Edition. George Washington Sears (aka "Nessmuk") was not only a master woodsman, but he shared his knowledge of bushcraft with the public in print. His classic work "Woodcraft and Camping" provides a valuable and useful guide on all aspects of outdoor living and survival, from camp construction, fishing, hunting, needed tools and equipment, fire building, cooking and much more. Nessmuk provided the foundation from which later survival authors, such as the great Horace Kephart, would build. In this work, one of America's most famous woodsmen and nature experts provides classic instructions for roughing it. His advice covers camping, hiking, building a fire, cooking out, shelters, tools and equipment, hunting and fishing, canoeing, and more. Useful, specific information and suggestions on all aspects of woodcraft. Originally published in 1920 as "Woodcraft". Illustrated.
